There are unique rules that apply specifically to motorcycles, such as the requirement for riders to wear a helmet at all times and the prohibition of lane splitting (riding between lanes of traffic). Additionally, motorcyclists are encouraged to increase their visibility on the road by wearing reflective clothing and using their headlights during the daytime.
